Featured Center: Charleston Stage Professional Resident Actor Josh Harris.


Q: Where did you grow up? Were there any activities you did as a child that led to your passion for theatre and the arts?
A:I grew up in Texas. There was a community theatre that would come into my elementary school and perform every month. The actors announced at the end of the performance about auditions for the next show with the theatre. I went, was cast in Charlottes Web and I knew I had found my home. That was 4th grade.


Q: Where did you study theatre?
A: I studied theatre at Southeastern Oklahoma State University.


Q: What are some of your favorite roles?
A: Some of my favorite roles include, Thenardier in Les Miserables, Amos Hart in Chicago, Adolph in The Last Night Of Ballyhoo.


Q: How did you prepare for playing the your roles in Legally Blonde? Were there any challenges or things that you were excited about with taking on this character?
A: I play four different characters in Legally Blonde. The challenge was to make all of the characters completely different from one another.


Q: You’ve been in performances for the past three weeks… what do you look forward to each night performing?
A: I look forward to playing the prison guard each night. I also really enjoy watching the rest of the cast. I could watch Vanessa Moyen every night as Elle Woods. She is simply outstanding.


Q: Please share with us your thoughts and experience so far on being a Resident Actor with Charleston Stage.
A: Being a Resident Actor is an amazing experience. I think the thing I love most about my job is teaching and inspiring our students. It’s a thrill to teach them the art of theatre and then have them come see one of our shows and converse with them about the craft. It’s a beautiful part of this life.
